Gartner® recently released their latest report on Infrastructure Security: “How to Protect Organizations Against Business Email Compromise Phishing”.
This report illustrates how BEC attacks use targeted social engineering to succeed and maximize payout to attackers, making them a fast-growing threat to all organizations.
“Security and risk management leaders should use this research to upgrade their existing technologies and processes to protect against this threat.” Gartner key recommendations for building a responsible infrastructure security include:
- Maximize protection against BEC by seeking out and implementing AI-based secure email gateway solutions that offer advanced BEC phishing protection, behavioral analysis, imposter detection and internal email protection
- Supplement your existing email security solutions with additional controls to further reduce the risk of BEC attacks like ATO and domain abuse
- Update processes around user and email authentication for financial/data transactions, and migrate high-risk ad hoc transactions for authenticated systems to bridge gaps in business process errors
- Educate users and suppliers/partners on the different types of BEC phishing, and preventive measures for protection, by conducting user awareness training at regular intervals
